We’ve all been there; you walk into your doctor’s office, who you’ve created a great longstanding relationship with, only to find that they are no longer in your health insurance network! What are you to do when the provider that you know and trust is no longer working with your insurance carrier?! Before you let the #panic set in, take a deep #breath and #educate yourself on the following #process:
- Contact your insurance carrier by using the phone number on the back of your ID card and tell the representative that you would like to #nominate your provider to be contracted with your health insurance carrier.
- Your health insurance carrier will then reach out to your provider to schedule a meeting to negotiate a contract that will hopefully get your provider back into your #network.
- Be aware that this does not guarantee that your provider will decide to make a contractual agreement with your insurance carrier, but it is always worth the #effort if you want to continue seeing your current provider!
We know that finding providers that you #trust is no easy task! That’s why we want to #help you retain your current relationship with your provider and #maximize your out-of-pocket dollar by staying within your #network. Give Clevenger Insurance a call today at 574-267-2181 so we can #educate you further on your insurance #network!
